A good night’s sleep is the pinnacle of a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, with so many distractions around the home, a good night’s sleep is often a far-fetched dream for many. Lack of enough sleep affects your mood, performance, and productivity negatively. Smart home systems provide solutions that enhance your sleep time and replenish your energy. All synchronized to your smart device!
Here are five ways your smart home can help you sleep better:
1. Smart Lighting
The human brain is controlled by a circadian rhythm that naturally differentiates between day and dark, essentially telling the body when it is time to sleep and wake up. Too much lighting in the home, especially the blue lights from TV screens, mobile devices, and PCs may trick your brain into thinking that it is still daytime. This not only affects your circadian rhythm but also leads to sleep disorders. Smart bulbs work by filtering these blue lights and replicates natural light. This ensures that your circadian rhythm remains as natural as possible, for better sleep. Smart lighting systems also can adjust the level of brightness based on the time of day.
In addition, smart window treatments allow you to control the lighting in your home at any time of the day. Read our article on Smart Window Treatments.
2. Morning Technology
Every morning at your preferred time, a freshly brewed cup of coffee could be waiting for you. You can even have your smart shower running at your favorite temperature! Smart appliances save time by working automatically in the background to perform pre-programmed functions, allowing you to sleep in! Read our article on Smart Kitchen Gadgets.
3. Temperature Control
The temperature of your room has to be just right to enjoy optimum sleep. Very hot temperature or freezing conditions will certainly affect your sleep patterns. However, with smart thermostats and voice-controlled air conditioners, enjoying the perfect temperature at night has never been easier. Smart thermostats allow you to control and program your central heat and air cooling systems from your smart device.
4. Security Systems
Constantly worrying about your safety can drastically affect your sleep patterns. Embrace responsive living by adding a smart security system to your home, including indoor and outdoor security cameras, floodlights, and alarms. Smart security systems will give you the peace of mind you need for a good night’s sleep.
5. Smart Beds
Studies suggest that the type of bed and mattress used can greatly affect your sleep. A poor quality mattress will always cause you to toss and turn throughout the night. If you often wake up feeling with low energy and lacking focus the next day, then it is time to find a replacement. Smart beds give you a restful sleep every night! Smart beds can track your sleeping habits, giving you an overall score that you can use to make adjustments to your bed for better sleep.
Smart home systems allow you to monitor and make changes remotely, meaning you can set your home to the perfect sleeping conditions before you even get home! All that is left to do is climb into bed and enjoy those zzzzzz’s!
